Q: Can I draw these (Ranfren) characters? A: It is allowed to draw or replicate (into another medium like videos) of the Ranfren characters. Permission is not required in this case to be able to make them.
-***Please keep in mind works containing extreme sexual depictions using these characters is forbbiden, or using these characters or content to target and slander a race of people, religion, etc is not allowed.
Q: Do I have to give credit?
A: Credit original source when can but not very strict on this. If creating something bigger in scale than a drawing you can use the current website's link "https://ranfren.neocities.org/"; all that is asked is that you do not claim to have come up with the characters originally.
Q: Can I use Ranfren characters for material to sell at conventions or online?
A: It is allowed to create content with Ranfren characters for small profit as long as it it is individually-owned and controlled (indie-based) and not commercially run by business.
For example: Making art of the characters by your own hands and selling them at conventions, sewing dolls and selling at conventions or doing commissions for others is fine and does not require permission to do so. Again to provide origin source when can, more of to just let people know what its about and they can find the original comics and stuff to read. You also have to make it without using soley the original source artwork and make your own; it is so that it's unable to just take the art already made and use it for fast profit. Creative collage work is permissionable however~~
Q: Can I make own Ranfren OC (original character/content)?
A: Derivative content won't be considered part of canon and will be entirely separate to the original artist but to not restrict or stifle creative freedoms it is okay to make own stories, comics, etc using the Ranfren universe!
***The author does not look over artwork that is not belonging to them, and as such derivative content and its viewpoints/ideals are separate of the original artist's (Captainhowdie's) and will not be held responsible for other's content and actions outside of the established canon.
Q: Am I allowed to use your artwork for my icon for forum/social site/etc?
A: Yes. It is nice to leave credit somewhere on profile if using.
4 - For bigger commercial use, please seek permission and for proper discussion using business e-mail email@example.com.
6 - At any point Captainhowdie is allowed to shut down any project which may make them lose the rights to their creative work.
Thank you for reading.
have a good life
